Uber’s “Doors Are Always Opening”

Uber’s “Doors Are Always Opening”

by Alvin Manalac December 9, 2020 VR, Marketing

Brief

In September 2018, Uber launched the largest campaign in their history. Entitled the “Doors Are Always Opening”, this $500M campaign was part of the company’s effort to give the brand a fresh outlook.

For this reason, Uber was looking for innovative ways to reach their US audience in an untapped media. The other requirement was to be able to gather new data to quantify engagement to the brand message.

 

 

 

 

Technology

Uber decided to buy Admix’s display and Videos inventory programmatically through the Verizon DSP, via Private Marketplace. They were able to re-use their existing creatives, that Admix convert to their in-play format on the runtime.

The easy setup via a platform Uber was already familiar to, enabled the campaign to get setup in a few days.

 

 

 

 

Inventory

Uber picked from a list of 100+ supply partners to prioritize driving simulation apps, flight simulation apps and discovery apps. They specifically targeted virtual reality apps on mobile, with an audience of young professionals likely to use their service. Uber put in place a daily cap on spent, which Admix hit every day during the campaign, a testament to the scale of our in-play inventory.

 

 

 

Results

  • reached 165,000 US users immersed in VR apps
  • unique in-play engagement metrics show the audience spent a total of over 19h directly looking at the Uber brand
  • create a memorable experience to fit their new campaign’s objective

Kia Motors has always been an industry leader when it comes to implementing new and innovative tech in their design process.

Now, with Varjo XR-1 supported by Autodesk VRED, Kia’s visualization process can move to a totally immersive photorealistic environment. And that means global design reviews can go from days to an hour.

 

Photorealistic, real-scale and hands-on – Seeing is believing

There’s magic happening in the Europe Design Center of Kia Motors – the South Korean automotive company. Thomas Unterluggauer is the center’s Creative Manager CGI. He’s wearing the Varjo XR-1 headset as he works on a Kia model in the studio; moving seamlessly between the real and virtual car in front of him, and making changes on the fly.

What he’s seeing and doing in the Kia studio hasn’t been possible until now. Welcome to the new reality.

When Kia’s European team tried out Varjo’s VR headset for the first time, they were blown away by the clarity and the resolution compared to all other headsets.
